Getting Started

Getting Started

Once you have followed the Quick Start Guide to install, network, and connect A/V inputs to your TelVue TeleCast 2, here are the steps to quickly get rolling with streaming:

  1. Login to the Web User Interface.
  2. Click on the admin username in the upper right to edit the user settings, and change the password to a secure password that you will remember.
  3. Visit the Dashboard page and ensure the Input shows OK indicating a valid A/V signal is present on the encoder input.
  4. Visit the Networking page to setup DNS so your TelVue TeleCast 2 can resolve Internet domain names that will likely be used when setting up Destinations.
  5. Visit the System page to set your Time Zone.
  6. Visit the Encoder page to setup your Encode Profile and optional Adaptive rates.
  7. Visit the Dashboard page and click Play on the monitor to preview the live encoding and ensure the signal into the encoder is what you expect. Note there is a delay of up to 10 seconds on the Monitor stream.
  8. Visit the Destinations page to add one or more streaming Destinations. For example you can setup a 24×7 destination with Autostart such as TelVue CloudCast, and additional Social Media destinations such as YouTube and Facebook that will be manually started and stopped for specific events.
  9. Visit the Dashboard page to Start and Stop Destinations as needed, and Monitor your live encoding.
